One of the things that the Dead Sea region is famous for is the incredible nature parks it is blessed with. In the midst of this intensely dry desert land are the most miraculous oases.
Ein Feshkha\Einot Tzukim is the lowest nature reserve in the world and one of the most stunning ones in Israel, with natural spring pools, abundant vegetation and archaeological artifacts dating back to the Second Temple period.
There is nothing you want to do more in this region than jump in to a cold pool of water and Nahal David is just the place to do so. A major attraction in the Ein Gedi Reserve, Nahal David is believed to be the place where King David hid from the wrath of King Saul. A number of pools lead to an incredible waterfall allowing hikers to cool off in a most beautiful setting.
The Ein Gedi Reserve is home to another stream; the Arugot Stream and the fresh water sources and large variety of plant and animal species make this Reserve an extremely popular choice for visitors. There are a number of trails on offer from family-friendly ones to harder ones for the experienced hiker.
